like the enemy. that was not a high point in america. what are we talking about here? we're talking about detaining people under the law of war who are suspected of joining al qaeda of the taliban in engaging in a belligerent act against the united states. now, i want to make the record clear that some of my colleagues on the republican side have been trying to deny law of war detention to the obama administration, and they have openly said this. if you allow this to happen, president obama is going to put you in jail because of political dissent. there are people on my side who are afraid of law of war detention being in barack obama's hand because they think -- they hate him so much, they think that he is going to use a provision to protect us against an al qaeda attack to put them in jail because they disagree with his agenda. and it gets worse. i want you to know this. there has been a statement in our conference that habeas corpus reviewed by an independent judiciary for the intelligence community, the military would have to prove in court by a preponderance of the evidence tha

with the anniversary of columbus' arrival in the americas. he aimed very high in the vision for the new school. the president, though, is not the first speaker. after an opening prayer, a princeton professor, henry van dyke, recited a lengthy poem call "texas: a democratic ode" that he wrote for the ceremony. this invoked images of wild bees, distant stars, and frontier pioneers. the dallas morning news reported that the audience listened to the poet's words, quote, "with the strictist attention with applause." now, the next speaker, the chief justice of texas spoke in prose. his review was nowhere near as good as the poet received. [laughter] now, in light of that, i thought the best course would be for me to compos a poem for this occasion.

of the congressional races. does it matter in america who was elected to congress and it was like it really hit me. i think the answer is yes. and as a former nine term house member i was troubled by the question but i can understand that because most of the meaty discussion concerns the presidential race. i am convinced the founding fathers made a clear statement when they said that the first part of the organization of our government, the article i organization, was congress and in fact day they i think implicitly felt in terms of trying to -- executive authority that it was more important branch of the government at that point in time. not that times have changed but the power the president has changed dramatically but i think it's -- to ignore these races regardless of who is elected president. so we have this amazing election, interesting election on many parts of it and i think the topic occurring one day before the election is particularly relevant particularly as it relates to congress and the election and how elections are operating in how it relates to the presidential election. i have ques

daily tracking survey so every night in america 1000 people are asked if they are lesbian, gay or bisexual. see what percentage? >> about 3.5% said yes and the exit polling said that 5% of the electorate said yes and so what that allows us to do though is so we had data, have data from june, collected from june through september and for the first time we did and just look at the national vote that we can start to look at regional and state level votes. what i did was a little analysis, not just how the lgbt vote affected the national election and certainly from the national popular vote, it turns out that they lgbt support for obama is about the size of his victory over romney. so you can credibly make the argument that with the popular vote, the lgbt vote, baby huge difference but of course that is not how you win the presidency in the united states. the issue is what it did in the state elections and what i found was really interesting, the same scenario for the popular vote in the national vote happened for ohio and florida so the lgbt support for obama is bigger in both ohi

is going to be how do you preserve the possibility of a two-state outcome which remains in america's interest, and remains frankly in israeli and pal stippians' interests. they never achieve their aspiration with a one-state outcome because that's not going to happen, but israel also has an interest in a two-state outcome because, ultimately, they don't have an interest in the demographic clock dictate what israel's future will be. the key challenge for the administration is how do you preserve a two-state approach, and i think the real issue at this point is how do you contend with the greatest single problem which is disbelief on each side. they believe poll stinnians are not interested, and two staids,r it's a phased approach. palestinians look at the israelis, and they are not interested in two states, they will not vender control to us, and if they are interested in two states, why build in what should be a two state. neither one has a belief that the other the committed to two states. the challenge is how do you change that dynamic? since i said i have two minutes, i have a 1
